Alibaba is a Chinese eCommerce store that matches Chinese suppliers with buyers all over the world. Prices are extremely cheap, providing the possibility of large profits. However, with the potential profits comes more risk. As you are dealing with suppliers in China, if the quality of the product that arrives isn’t up to standard there is little that you can do about it.

Great list of resources – I think as Google adapts its algorithm post-Panda update, it’s going to be more important how you choose to monetize and promote your website. I believe some recent findings from an SEO company found that site with Adsense, for example, tended to perform worse in SERPs than similar sites without Adsense. Could be lots of factors, but interesting nonetheless. Thanks again for the post.
Two years ago, Jacco Blankenspoor wrote a wonderful article detailing the 10 best ways to earn money from your website, but as the web evolves at an accelerated rate (and as a result, the way we engage with the web evolves), it’s ever the more important that our monetization methods evolve with it. If we want to monetize our websites effectively, it’s essential that we stay up-to-date with the current web and social trends.

Before working with Charles our website was functional, kind of, but flat out ugly! Our hands were full running the day to day operations of our business, with no extra time to overhaul our outdated website. Charles quickly showed us how to improve sales, attract new customers and build trust with our shoppers, making their experience effortless. The process was completely painless and easy...
Banner advertising is somewhat risky. Showing too many ads in a single webpage might detract users from visiting other pages, as well. Thus, the income from ads on a single page might be consistent, however it is far less than the income coming from a session of several pages visits from the same user. Thus, banner advertising should be used wisely, to maximize profits coming from this monetization source.

OnlyTheBreast.com. If you're a woman with breast milk, you can sell (or donate) your unused breast milk at this website to moms. You can sell for whatever price you want, but generally, moms sell for a couple bucks an ounce, which can add up, if you pump enough. You can sell locally, but many users ship their breast milk to willing buyers, as well.

Salvage and resell. Do you love antiques or have a knack for finding valuables at flea markets or yard sales? If you do, it might be time to consider salvaging items for resale – or even scouting out antiques to sell for a profit. While you’ll need to spend quite a bit of time searching for prospects and spend some money buying upfront, you could easily turn a profit if you know what you’re doing.
Good stuff (as usual). I just wanted to say that I’m leaning more towards non-AdSense type solutions as well as of recently. I’ve found that since both of my AdSense accounts were disabled (and my new Adsense account has yet to be approved for 2 months and counting), it’s much easier to work with different ad networks. This is because it seems like Google has tightened up their restrictions or something as of recently as far as approval is concerned. Most ad networks, from what I’ve found, don’t pay nearly as much as Adsense. However, I’m currently using Infolinks (which is decent) and also Chitika (not so good of results thus far). I’d really like to know what other companies have payouts that are reasonable as far as ad networks are concerned. Even though I’ve yet to try them, I’ve heard Altitude Digital Partners are pretty good. The same goes for Proioxis and ContextWeb, and Lijit to name a few you hopefully haven’t yet. Hope this helps everyone a bit. Please let us know what kind of experience you may have 🙂
